1.1   Noise Certification

Aircraft operating at EBCI must be noise certificated according to ICAO Annex 16, Volume I. Between 0530-0600 (0430-0500) and 2100-2200 (2000-2100), movements of aircraft with MTOW over 8 618 KG and certified according to the standards of chapters 2, 3, 4 or 5 of ICAO Annex 16, Volume I are restricted to a maximum QC of 5 per movement.

The QC is calculated using the formula QC = 10[(B-85)/10], whereby “B” equals:

  • for take-off: half the sum of the certified fly-over and sideline noise levels in EPNdB of the aircraft at its MTOW
  • for landing: the certified approach noise level in EPNdB of the aircraft at its maximum landing weight, minus 9 EPNdB.

At 2200 (2100) the aerodrome is closed for all aircraft movements, except for delayed landing of based aircraft (scheduled landing before 2200 (2100) and take-off the following day), provided the delay is due to circumstances beyond the operator's control and as far as the operator's points “P” do not exceed 0.616 per day (averaged on a yearly basis). For this purpose, “P” is calculated using the formula P = R x 10[(B-85)/10], whereby “B” equals the certified approach noise level in EPNdB of the aircraft at its maximum landing weight, minus 9 EPNdB and “R” equals:

  • 0.3 for a landing between 0 and 15 MIN or between 421 and 450 MIN after 2200 (2100);
  • 0.8 for a landing between 16 and 30 MIN after 2200 (2100);
  • 1.3 for a landing between 31 and 90 MIN after 2200 (2100);
  • 1.8 for a landing between 91 and 420 MIN after 2200 (2100).

Prior to any concerned flight, operators shall provide following information to the Airport Authority:

  • aircraft type and registration;
  • MTOW and MLW;
  • noise certification and, if necessary, all documents that include noise levels in EPNdB (sideline, take-off, approach).

Following flights are exempted from the noise quota system:

  • flights carrying members of the Belgian Royal Family, the federal government, regional or community governments or foreign royal families, foreign heads of state or government leaders, the President or members of the European Commission on official mission;
  • missions in case of disaster or medical urgency;
  • military missions;
  • take-off or landing performed in exceptional conditions (flights on which an immediate threat exists to the health of people or animals, diverted flights, etc.).
1.2   Recertificated Aircraft

Recertificated civil subsonic jet aircraft are prohibited from 2200 to 0600 (2100 to 0500). The Airport Authority is entitled to require the aircraft operator to provide any related document or technical information concerning an operated aircraft, and to refuse take-off if these documents or information are not forwarded.

Following flights are exempted from this restriction:

  • flights carrying members of the Belgian Royal Family, the federal government, regional or community governments or foreign royal families, foreign heads of state or government leaders, the President or members of the European Commission on official mission;
  • missions in case of disaster or medical urgency;
  • military missions;
  • take-off or landing performed in exceptional conditions (flights on which an immediate threat exists to the health of people or animals, diverted flights, etc.);
  • delayed flights, provided the delay is due to circumstances beyond the operator's control.

Exceptionally and on explicit justified request, the minister of transport may authorize take-off or landing of a non-compliant aircraft.

1.3   Reverse Thrust

The use of reverse thrust shall be kept to a minimum compatible with the safety of the aircraft. On the aprons, it is prohibited at any time.

1.4   Penalties

Penalties are applied for any infringement found by the Airport Authority on:

  • the permanent or temporary restrictions for the use of some aircraft types according to ICAO Annex 16, Volume I;
  • the maximum values for noise generated on the ground;
  • the permanent or temporary restrictions for some aircraft activities due to the caused noise disturbance;
  • the rules concerning engine tests;
  • the noise abatement procedures for take-off and landing.
2   GROUND PROCEDURES
2.1   Engine Test Runs and Idle Checks

Engine tests are prohibited on aircraft stands 80, 81, 84, 85 and 88 to 94.

Outdoor engine test runs are prohibited between 2200 and 0800 (2100 and 0700).

3   ARRIVAL PROCEDURES
3.1   Noise Abatement Approach and Landing Procedures

Noise abatement descent and approach procedures using continuous descent and reduced power/reduced drag techniques should be used when following conditions apply:

  • ILS available;
  • runway clear and dry;
  • visibility exceeding 1 900 M;
  • ceiling higher than 500 FT above AD ELEV;
  • cross wind component lower than 15 KT (gusts incl);
  • tail wind component lower than 5 KT (gusts incl);
  • no adverse weather conditions that may affect the approach (wind shear, thunderstorms, etc).

Turbo-jet powered aircraft shall use as final flap setting the minimum certified setting published in the aircraft operating manual for the applicable conditions. However, each pilot-in-command may use a different flap setting approved for the aircraft if he determines that it is necessary in the interest of safety.

Aircraft CAT A and B not allowed between 2100-2200 (2000-2100), except for turbine engine able to maintain 160 KT till the OM as long as the IAF is overflown at 2130 (2030) at the latest. If the IAF is not overflown before 2130 (2030), ATC cannot guarantee that a landing will be possible before 2200 (2100) and the pilot may expect a diversion to another suitable aerodrome.

4   DEPARTURE PROCEDURES
4.1   Climb Gradient

In order to minimize noise nuisance and to clear obstacles in the departure area, aircraft shall maintain a net climb gradient of 4% MNM until passing 3 000 FT QNH.

4.2   Noise Abatement Take-off and Climb Procedures
  • From take-off to 2 100 FT QNH:
    • take-off power;
    • take-off flaps;
    • climb speed V2 + 10 KT MNM;
  • At 2 100 FT QNH:
    • maintain flaps in take-off configuration;
    • climb speed V2 + 10 to 20 KT;
    • adjust power according to the noise abatement power thrust schedule provided in the aircraft operating manual;
  • From 2 100 FT QNH to 3 600 FT QNH:
    • start accelerating;
    • start retracting flaps;
    • maintain a positive rate of climb;
  • At 3 600 FT QNH:
    • accelerate to en-route climb speed.

EBCI AD 2.22  Flight Procedures

2.3.4   Surveillance Radar Approach

SRA is available on both runways and will be terminated either:

  • at a distance of 2 NM from touchdown;
  • before the aircraft enters an area of continuous radar clutters;
  • when the aircraft reports that a visual approach can be made.

The aircraft will be informed at regular intervals of its position relative to the extended RCL and heading corrections will be given as necessary. The distance from THR will be passed on at each NM.

The levels through which the aircraft should be passing to maintain the glide path (3°) will also be passed on at each NM:

3.1.2   Climb Requirements

All traffic shall initially climb to 4 000 FT QNH, unless instructed otherwise by ATC. a higher level will be allocated as soon as possible.

Following additional requirements apply:

  • traffic proceeding via SOPOK- ETENO - ROPOV and planned above FL 245 shall cross BULUX at FL 170 MNM and ETENO at FL 250 MNM;
  • traffic proceeding via RITAX and planned above FL 245 shall cross RITAX at FL 250 MNM.

Aircraft unable to meet these requirements shall advise ATC when requesting start-up clearance, allowing for appropriate coordination to be made with adjacent ATS units in due time.

4   LOW VISIBILITY PROCEDURES
4.1   Facilities and Equipment Available
4.1.1   Runways

RWY 25 is equipped with ILS and is approved for CAT II and III. Following RVR minima apply:

  • CAT II: below 550 M to 300 M;
  • CAT III: below 300 M to 150 M;
  • TKOF: 150 M.

RWY 07 is approved for low visibility take-off when RVR ≥ 150 M

150 M RVR has been fixed as minimum RVR value by the Belgian CAA. Pilots requesting to land with RVR below 150 M will be advised that they are below minimum, but will not be refused landing clearance.

The runway exits are equipped with alternating green and yellow centre line lights within the ILS sensitive areas. Landing aircraft should leave this area as soon as possible.

In order to provide adequate protection of the ILS system, no vehicle or aircraft shall infringe the ILS sensitive areas when an arriving aircraft has passed the OM and has not completed its landing run.

Departing aircraft shall use the CAT II/III holding positions.

Guided take-off is not available.

During LVP when RVR is between 550 M and 150 M, movement of traffic on the manoeuvring area is limited to one aircraft or vehicle at the time.

4.1.2   Taxiways

Taxi is restricted to the taxiways equipped with centre line lights. Standard routes are established for departing and arriving aircraft (see chart AD2.EBCI-MISC.01).

When RVR at TDZ falls below 400 M, a follow-me car is available on stand-by to assist pilots during taxi upon request.

Neither vehicles nor aircraft shall pass through a stop bar unless, in case of technical problems, behind a follow-me car.

4.1.3   Communications

Pilots will be informed by ATIS or ATC when LVP are in progress. The ATIS message will contain the phrase “LOW VISIBILITY OPERATIONS IN PROGRESS” and will also provide details of any unavailability of equipment relevant to LVP.

Pilots will be informed by ATC when LVP are terminated.

4.2   Criteria for the Initiation and Termination of LVP

LVP includes preparation, operational and termination phases. The preparation phase will start when visibility falls below 1 500 M and/or ceiling is at or below 300 FT, and CAT II/III operations are expected. The operational phase will start when RVR falls below 550 M and/or ceiling is below 200 FT.

LVP will be terminated when RVR or VIS exceeds 1 000 M and ceiling is at or higher than 200 FT, and a continuing improvement in these conditions is expected.

4.3   Other Information

When LVP are in operation, arriving aircraft will be vectored to intercept the ILS at least 10 NM from touchdown. ATC will provide suitable spacing between arrivals to achieve sufficient protection of the ILS sensitive area (see § 4.1.1 above). Landing clearance will normally be given not later than 2 NM from touchdown.

The traffic manager will determine the applicable traffic acceptance rate according to the circumstances.

AVGAS refuelling is not allowed during LVP.

CAT II and CAT III approach practice during normal operations is allowed, but pilots should be aware that protection of the ILS sensitive area cannot be guaranteed and fluctuations in the ILS signal may occur. Pilots will be informed by ATC when protection of the sensitive area is not provided.

5   VFR FLIGHTS
5.1   General

Unless instructed otherwise by Charleroi TWR, pilots shall use the VFR routes established for their benefit and they shall join the visual reporting points used for entering or leaving Charleroi CTR at the specified altitude.

Special VFR flights may be performed as specified in ENR 1.2, § 1.2

5.2   Visual Reporting Points

VFR traffic shall only use following reporting points.

5.5   Visual Circuit

Visual circuit shall be flown at 1 500 FT AMSL MAX, unless otherwise instructed by ATC, or requested by the pilot.

6   RADIO COMMUNICATION FAILURE

If an IFR flight does not succeed in landing within the 30 MIN normally allowed for approach and landing, it shall leave Charleroi CTR on a track of 248° MAG at 2 500 FT QNH MAX, and land at the first suitable aerodrome where the weather conditions allow a visual approach and landing.

VFR flights flying within the aerodrome traffic circuit shall make a full-stop landing. Other VFR flights shall leave the controlled airspace via the shortest way:

  • when north of the runway axis: via NW;
  • when south of the runway axis: via S.
